How I Use It
ClassDojo gives teachers great tools to create and assign homework and lessons for their students, and has plenty of its own resources and engaging class videos that teachers can use instead. The ability to complete tasks in order to hatch their monster and customize their avatar gives students ways to express themselves to the class and rewards them for completing their work. the fact that teachers can also keep parents in the loop with class activities and student performance is great for making everyone feel connected.
My Take
My favorite part about this website is that I can see it being something students look forward to using. the options to create and customize an avatar that are unlocked by participating in the class give students an added motivation to do their work and engage with one another. I can see this being a great class management tool for remote learning.
